Thinking back over the start of this month, we were feverishly preparing for a trip to Colorado Springs. The first several days of the trip was a planned visit with our son and daughter-in-law, spending the time getting to know our granddaughter. It was my second time to visit with our sweet little princess, who … Continue reading A Hurricane, a Hornet, and a Horrifying Wreck
Another birthday! Updated August 24, 2020
This guy literally rocked my world from the very moment I saw him! And when I say rocked I don’t mean put me to sleep; He sent me soaring! I was charmed by the smile and the caring demeanor. He effectuated a kindness that I had never seen in action. He seemed to be the Prince Charming I had been dreaming of all of my life. [Okay, I was 18, not a very long life.] However, once we said “I do,” I realized he had not read up on any of the romance novels that I had digested as a teen.

I’m pretty good at reading people and situations. I believe these factors have contributed to my ability to size up situations and individuals rather quickly: Growing up in a small town, being treated unfairly at times, serving as a pastor’s wife for over 25 years, working with children since about 10 years of age, and … Continue reading The Arrogance of It All!

I LOVE condensed milk! I can remember, as a child, walking across the railroad tracks in my home town to … Continue reading Confessions of a Sugar-holic!
We’ve been dealt a hard blow. Life has changed and it may never, ever be the same. Through a pandemic that includes a cancer journey with my sister-in-law, through loss of jobs or finances for different family members and friends, through loss of caring for grandkids (like my sister is experiencing), or having to turn … Continue reading Where Do We Turn?
In 2009, a week after surgery, I returned to the hospital with a fever and vomiting. I was too sick to care if I lived or died. After putting dye through my veins and finding infection throughout my stomach, I was given two potent drugs. Unfortunately, these drugs caused side-effects which had me calling for … Continue reading Changing Our World!
Episode #10 I was talking with the Monday night Librarian (on Monday night) and it occurred to me how the Lord shapes us to do a job for Him no matter our age or status. Consider the three of us “Librarians.” You have the “Real” Librarian and then the Monday night Librarian and finally, me, … Continue reading 5 Year Anniversary: Episode 10
Five years ago, my heart was heavy. I was alone much of the time. Having been laid aside with a herniated disk, I wondered to what purpose God would use it. So, I poured over the Scriptures asking for His direction and guidance during this time of isolation and recovery. And it was then that … Continue reading Celebrating 5 Years with WordPress!
“Rodrigo” (as I like to call him) and I had a lovely cookout the other day! The food was great, and the company was amusing 😉 but what thrilled me the most was the peaceful setting. No thoughts of a “Lockdown” or even a “virus;” No worry or care “called in” to interrupt that peace-filled … Continue reading The Third “P”

Getting in bed and covering your head hoping it will all just go away? I have good news! It doesn’t have to be that way. No matter how bad … Continue reading Be In The Know
